The Soil Association has produced a number of videos to celebrate World Soils Day, on tardigrades, earthworms and fungi.  They write:-

Soils are under threat. Across the world, agricultural intensification is depleting the soil, its productivity and biodiversity.

One quarter of our planet’s life is hidden beneath our feet; a complex community of organisms that are vital for healthy soil and to mark World Soils Day this Monday, we’ve created several short [1min] videos to celebrate the life beneath our feet. Please share them with your friends and family using the hashtag #WorldSoilsDay.

Let’s protect soils and spread the word about this remarkable world of soil life which helps feed us all. Together we can change the world.
